We attended a Vintage fair here on Saturday which was excellent. It's a lovely little place with a nice friendly cafe serving drinks and delicious cakes. I can imagine it's a great atmosphere and will keep an eye out for forthcoming events and return.

Wonderful production of this Play. Our first visit to the Playhouse was a total joy. The staff are helpful and very friendly, the venue is easy to find and parking is free although you may have a short walk.

Attended some events here as part of the Ilkley Literature Festival. It is clearly greatly loved and appreciated by the local community, and the facilities are very good.

We really enjoyed the play we went to see,it was a great, chilled Friday night. Cosy, little, local theatre. No show off, friendly atmosphere.

We were at Ilkley for the Tour De France and the playhouse was temporarily opened as a cafe. Friendly and informative staff and clean facilities despite being opened to the public for the weekend.

Last show seen was Torch Song Triology in the smaller of the two theatres - great production - well directed and acted with excellent support behind the scenes. As usual a higher than average performance worth checking out what's on when you visit Ilkley.
